A Program Thats Engaging and Exciting Todays technology makes it easy for kids to have fun and learn at the same time. Ideally, youll want a 2nd grade help program that isnt tedious or boring - but rather one which gets your child excited about learning. Second grade is a time where children learn to read with expression, or delve into new concepts in math like subtraction and "borrowing" numbers. Everything your child learns in the second grade will act as a foundation in the next grade and beyond - so its important that they understand these core concepts as they progress through school. The right 2nd grade help program will teach them the basics, in an environment thats fun, approachable and rewarding.
After seeing how meditation, carpet and couches have transformed my friends classroom, I wonder if this new thinking really works and what other kinds of experiments in education can make a difference. An Observation in Classroom Comfort I went in to watch a friend teach a lesson this week after hearing all summer about his plans to make his 9th grade classroom less intimidating and more student friendly. When I walked in students were sitting in a circle, some on a polka dotted carpet reminiscent of a 2nd grade, about to begin a one minute silent breathing exercise before starting the days work. Students were encouraged to block out all thoughts and just concentrate on inhaling and exhaling through their nose. I was impressed with how seriously they all took it. A freshman whom I had seen escorted out of an all school assembly for cursing out a dean, was now calmly concentrating on his breathing.
Lesson plans always take a lot of time and dedication to put together. Each teacher has their own method to creating the perfect lesson plan in 2nd grade. One thing every teacher has in common is the variety that must be put into the plan. Children get bored when the same methods are used over and over again, especially young children in 2nd grade. Children need variety, including hands-on teaching, worksheets and even computer time. Each child has a different method of learning, which is why it is important for teachers to include variety in their 2nd grade lesson plan. Hands-On Learning Kids love to get their hands into things. Whether you are planning a science experiment or teaching a new math concept, giving children the ability to use their hands to learn gives them another view on the topic. Using more than one sense allows children to really get into what they are learning. Even kids who do not require hands-on techniques to understand a topic will enjoy the hands-on learning you provide.
Tip #2 - Create Your Own Books. Get just five pages of paper and staple them together. Ask your child to write the story and illustrate it. You can help them with spelling and writing, but they should be doing the physical writing of the book. This allows their brain to remember the letters and spelling of words. Tip #3 - Make A Card Game. Its easy to make a card game like Go Fish or Memory out of spelling words. Create a template in Microsoft Word or a similar program and type the weekly words in, print them and cut them out. You can get creative if you have time and add clip art. Have a younger child? Save the cards because you might end up with the same lists for them someday! Tip #4 - Practice Spelling Online. There are many online spelling games available, some of which are even free. On some sites, you can use your own lists from your school. Take advantage of your childs comfort with computers to have them play a few games everyday online instead of simply writing the words out which can be tedious and boring.
Re-Teaching Math Lessons With Different Instruction Techniques Once youve spotted weaknesses, its important to deal with them right away. Stay in contact with your childs teacher and discuss the possibility of using different types of instruction to teach problematic lessons. Many teachers will appreciate the interest and may even be able to find ways to combine at-home and in-classroom lessons for the best possible results. Many children have problems with mathematics in the 2nd grade. Its a difficult age to encounter any academic difficulties and children often deal with frustration due to the complexity of their math lessons. By helping them at home and by using age-appropriate electronic learning tools, youll take a lot of the stress out of the situation, which will lead to better results and a better in-school experience for your child.
A few years ago, when it was time to consider ideas for the annual science project at my daughters elementary school, we found ourselves once again looking for something that would be just a little bit different. I dont know why but there is only so much inspiration one can find in determining which roll of kitchen paper has the greatest absorbency capacity or what happens to a white flower if you place the cut stem in a vase of colored water. At a timely moment I happened to recall some pictures of cooked rice I had seen in the water crystal book by Masaro Emoto - the basic story was that cooked rice will age differently depending on the thoughts one projects toward it. OK - this was novel - something that really sparked our curiosity, so my then 7 year old, Bella, and I decided to see what would really happen if we did this experiment on our own.
